Samsung Goes Back to Basics, Bashes iPhone Yet Again in New TV Ad

In January 2012, Samsung said it was time for the tide to turn. A year later, the company managed to keep its impossible promise. With a marketing budget that reached well into the billions and a single message, Samsung began its rapid ascent to the top of the smartphone market by shipment volume. That single message: “The iPhone stinks.”

16GB iPhone 6s iOS 9 Storage Fixes

Why I Think the 16GB iPhone Curse is Here to Stay

Why I Think the 16GB iPhone Curse is Here to Stay

One of the things iOS 9 is slowly fixing is the storage issue that has prevented many users who were not familiar how iOS updates work from upgrading. Instead, they found themselves delaying the move to iOS 8 because there wasn’t enough storage space on their devices to perform over-the-air (OTA) upgrades. But Apple’s actions also seem to indicate that despite the recent move to increase double the storage on its mid-tier and high-end iPhones, the 16GB iPhone is probably here to stay. More →
